Networked BI: data flows in both directions.

Networked BI virtualizes the entire BI ecosystem, transforming every aspect of an organization’s approach to analytics. Built on top of Birst’s modern, multi-tenant cloud architecture, Networked BI creates a set of interwoven BI instances that share a common analytical fabric. This enables organizations to expand the use of BI across multiple regions, departments and customers in a more agile way, and empowers these decentralized teams to augment their enterprise data with their own local data.

Networked BI is different, allowing both top-down and bottom-up blending of data. The result is local execution with global governance, eliminating data silos once and for all and dramatically accelerating the delivery of BI across the enterprise.
